Thank you to Central England! Central England Co-operative Society Support We would like to thank the Board and Staff of Central England for their recent donation of £5000, in support of our heritage charity. What does this money do? We don't receive government funding and we don't charge for entry - so we rely on generating our own income and donations in order to continue to preserve and share the material heritage of the co-operative movement. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been the closure of the museum and archive service, preventing us from working on projects to increase engagement. Donations like this help us buy resources, create workshops for community learning and work with collections. We are grateful for any support from individuals and organisations.
